Fuel leak

New 6.4 owner here. Bought a leftover 2009 F350 with 140 miles 2 weeks ago and noticed a fuel leak when I got it home. Just a small spot on the driveway every time I park it. Took it to dealer last week but they were unable to find the source. It now has 750 miles and the leak has not gotten any worse but I can't seem to locate it either and am hoping that someone on the forum has seen this. The drip is coming from the bellhousing directly below the lower starter bolt. Thanks in advance for the help.

Sounds like the line from the HPFP to the fuel rail.

I can see a line that connects to a fitting towards the rear of the right side valve cover. Is that the one?

I would bet there is something leaking around the HPFP. Will be hard to see until it's taken apart since there is a big *** tin shield over top of the HPFP where the lines are.

Is there an online manual that would walk me thru the process of accessing the HPFP?
